Eastman Chemical, Janssen R&D, Merck Win EPA Awards
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized three industrial facilities with the Energy Star Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Award for their highly efficient CHP systems.
The award winners are:
- Eastman Chemical Company, Kingsport, Tenn.
- Janssen R&D LLC, Spring House, Pa.
- Merck, West Point, Pa.
CHP systems used by the award winners achieve operating efficiencies of between 62 and 78 percent – compared to the efficiency of conventional production of electricity and thermal energy, which can be less than 50 percent.
CHP, also known as cogeneration, simultaneously produces electricity and steam or hot water from a single heat source, using traditional or renewable fuels.
Established in 2001, EPA’s voluntary CHP Partnership program seeks to reduce the environmental impact of power generation by promoting the cost-effective use of CHP.
